Wikipedia...where the fun never stops!

| 1 Comment

So in class today we were told to edit an article regarding a subject we knew something about. Sounds easy enough, right? Not for this guy, apparently. Rather than merely edit an article, I decided that it would be a good idea to write a whole new one, full of witty rhetoric and misleading facts. Seeing as how my next class was Chaucer, and I wasn't particularly happy about it at the time, I took it upon myself to write the man a new biography. Geoffrey Chaucer was, of course, already taken, so I named my character "Jeffrey" with the same last name.

If reading the entry, you would find out several shocking facts about Chaucer, not the least of which is that he was a good friend of Adolf Hitler, and one of the first proponents of Gay marriage. Hey, I enjoyed this excercise, and it was a good outlet for my frustrations. If Wikipedia can't take a joke, screw them, right?

Update: By the time I got home Wikipedia had already removed the article. Before I even had a chance to print it. Damn their efficiency.

Makes you wonder what losers at Wikipedia spend all their time finding this stuff, why bother to let other people edit at all if they are so efficient at fixing the stuff?
